Testimonials

Melissa was great to work with. She was highly knowledgeable with the area we were looking to buy in as well as always accessible. She took into account our wish list and found just what we wanted. I highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking to purchase in Westchester or the surrounding area!

Melissa helped me to sell one property and purchase another. Both transactions went very smoothly. She's friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, and worked hard to find properties that fit my criteria. Melissa was a pleasure to work with, and I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Melissa sold a co-op for us in Bronxville. We had previously listed it with other realtors and had no success. Her knowledge of the market, attitude, and follow through are all essential qualities that she possesses! She's a pleasure to work with! We highly recommend her!

Melissa is the BEST! I absolutely cannot give her enough stars on this review. My husband and I are first time home buyers and although the process was very daunting, Melissa clearly explained each step and helped find the perfect home for us. Melissa is extremely knowledgeable and was able answer any questions we had about the buying process, the areas where we were looking, future construction ideas and possibilities, energy, taxes, schools, architecture, making offers, and so much more. Melissa is super organized, very hard working and extremely quick to send thoughtful responses to texts, calls and emails. She went above and beyond in the months we worked together and was even able to pick us up from the train from Manhattan, take us to viewing appointments (for which she always set up a great itinerary) and drop us off at the train afterward. She also took the time to send us informative emails about solar power, and press about the areas where we were looking. When it came time to choose an inspector, lawyer, and lender, Melissa had lots of great recommendations making the choosing process much easier. One of the things we loved most about working with Melissa is that she is very kind and not in any way pushy. She made a conscious effort to find what was best for us, and was a tough negotiator when it came to getting an accepted offer on our favorite home - we feel lucky that we had her on our side. Melissa is a true pro who loves what she does and is incredible to work with. Make the decision to work with Melissa and know that you are making the right choice.

We were referred to Melissa and she did not disappoint! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with her from the beginning, she took her time and was ALWAYS super responsive. What I like most about Melissa is if she didn't have the answer within a short amount of time she would call me back with the info. needed. Melissa was also good in helping to push our process along. Great agent to have in your corner.

F. Genovesi, Port Chester

Melissa has been a tremendous help with my home sale far beyond providing simply a listing service or sales network. Her interior design background made all the difference in making my home saleable. She was the point person in recoloring rooms, staging, and making my house feel like a home to potential purchasers. Highly recommended A+.

Kathryn M.

Words cannot describe how appreciative we are to Melissa. As first time home buyers with no previous knowledge of the home buying process/experience my husband & I were overwhelmed by this prospect. However Melissa helped put us at ease working with us to find a property in our budget & in an area we love. This was not a quick process sifting through multiple properties, but Melissa never gave up even when it seemed like our perfect home was out of reach. Melissa was patient, attentive, knowledgeable, supportive & overall helpful. We could not be more pleased to have had Melissa’s help & expertise, my husband & I highly recommend Melissa. If anyone is in the market please seek out Melissa’s expertise we promise you will not be disappointed.

Kimberly, White Plains

We've worked with and had experiences with a decent number of realtors over the years - and Melissa is, by far one of the best we've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her knowledge of the Westchester market, towns, schools, transportation - combined with her honesty and warm/easy going personality was not only comforting, but exactly what we needed in order to get even the least bit comfortable with an area that was completely foreign to us.

Melissa helped my boyfriend and I buy our first home. We couldn't have done it without her! She is professional, knowledgeable, timely, and honest. I could not have asked for a better realtor!

Michele Henn, Yonkers

Melissa has outstanding skills that make her customers want to continue to work with her. She listens intently and tailors the job specifically to the clients needs and desires while giving insight and her special touch. She has a unique ability to bring out a clients taste and express their individual savoir-faire. She is a detailed individual who is hard working and will get the job done.

N. Servello, White Plains

I can't say enough positive things about working with Melissa. This was my first home purchase. Her vast knowledge of the entire process was invaluable, as I had no prior experience or knowledge. Her local knowledge of White Plains was helpful in finding my first home and her personal experience with co-ops in particular prepped me for what to expect and how to handle different scenarios. She worked closely with the selling agent to negotiate a great deal that I was very comfortable with. I asked many questions, being new to the process. She answered all of them honestly and professionally which gave me a solid understanding when making key decisions. I hope to work with Melissa again in the future, and would definitely recommend her to anyone with real estate needs.

Kimberly, White Plains

Melissa was a pleasure to work with. She was quite professional in all aspects of buying our home. She knew a lot about all the local neighborhoods and their pros and cons and was always willing to be upfront with us regarding the area as we were coming from Brooklyn and weren't as familiar with all the neighborhoods Westchester has to offer. She helped us through our process of buying our home from searching every weekend for months to negotiating on our perfect home. Melissa was always responsive via email and text and always willing to give us honest information. Melissa was also willing to pick up the phone and conference call with us at any time. I always felt like she had our best interest in mind and would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent that is knowledgeable, professional and really cares about her buyers' needs.
